Geoengineering may wreak havoc on animals, plants…
To counteract global warming, humans may someday consider spraying sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to form clouds — and artificially cool the Earth.
The idea behind the process, known as geoengineering, is to keep global warming under control — with the ideal solution still being a reduction in the emissions of greenhouse gases.
However, suddenly stopping that spraying would have a “devastating” global impact on animals and plants, potentially even leading to extinction, according to the first study on the potential biological impacts of climate intervention.
MIT jumps on the fear-mongering bandwagon with USA Today:
Suddenly stopping geoengineering would be dangerous. Which is why doing so is unlikely.
